Suchots of one of the largest and most famous premiers crus in Vosne-Romanée, just below Les Beaux-Monts and Aux Brûlées, with Echezeaux to its north, and Romanée-Saint-Vivant to its south. It makes a structured and spicy wine, with powerful length and wonderful balance.
The 2020 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru has a very intense bouquet with dark cherries, iodine, violet petals and light graphite scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a candied opening, but there is a fine bead of acidity here, blood orange infusing the dark plummy fruit towards the finish that has a slightly granular texture. It is a little difficult to see how this will mature but I believe it is on the right track.
